It can be said that the entirety of Olthar's population is enslaved to the wealthy elite. So, yes. We do support slavery.

No, slavers are given the death penalty via Firing squad after being tortured.

Diplomatically speaking Skibereen is technically at war with any nation whose government directly supports slavery.
This is not to say "I invade joo post losses", the the implication is that Skibereen is openly hostile towards, and proactively engaged in fighting the slave trade -- be it by diplomatic, economic or military means.

Its policy is similar to that of its neighbor Lyras.

Does Zephyrinia support slavery?
This should answer your question.
•1 day 15 hours ago: Following new legislation in Zephyrinia, convicted felons are forced into slavery for their crimes.
•2 days 15 hours ago: Following new legislation in Zephyrinia, the workforce is almost entirely made up of slave labour.
•3 days 3 hours ago: Following new legislation in Zephyrinia, a large percentage of the poor live from cradle to grave in subterranean wage slavery.
Our head of state, Mme. Zephyrine Desjardins (pictured in flag), has a magical time machine and/or never ages, thus allowing her to RP in any time period.
However, the nation of Zephyrinia itself exists only in modern time.
(Speaking strictly RP, of course) Send Zephyrinia a telegram.
Mme. Zephyrine Desjardins (pictured in flag), is not presently in
a committed relationship, but she's always looking for "flings."

Azhadstan never practiced slavery, they never suffered the keeping of slaves; all men of Azhadstan were paid for their labor and their services; including those who built the Pyramids.

Ameriqua has never, and will never suffer the existence of slavery, men are not property to be bought or haggled for.

Not at all.

Mackonia is a signatory of the armistad declaration on slavery and thus strives for the total annihilation of the slaver menace,anyone found practicing slavery in Mackonia is to have his/her internal organs ripped from his body while he/she burns.

Waste of time, we process them, torture them for information and then execute them on public TV on a certain date via firing squad, our guns cause the mess to be big.

Though the COG guys have a interesting chainsaw treatment now so that seems good.

Like Imprisonment there is legal and illegal slavery, legal slavery is when we put convicts to work as slaves, usually to substitute striking industrial workers. on the other side of the scale, there is illegal slavery, such as forcing a civillian to work against their will, sex slavery and human trafficking.

No, Even prison laborers get paid. (albeit a small allowance with the remainder of their wage being sent to compensate their victims)

Any slaver vessel that enters our territory is apprehended by our navy, the slavers are then imprisoned for 15 years (as well as jail time any other offenses they may of committed...) and their captives freed.

We also 'facilitate' the escape of slaves from slaver states.

Slavery is neither explicitly legal nor illegal in Lialoth, but is more likely to happen the further from the abbeys you look.
I'm RPing a distant past tech nation populated nearly exclusively by three foot tall bipedal mice who are undergoing subtle speciation due to long lasting social policies.
If this is too ridiculous for you, you might want to opt out of RPing with me.

Slavery is illegal since founding of the country in 1948.

Yes, we get slaves off our South American, east Asian and African colonies although for rail road and construction workers, we buy slaves off Russia. Prisoner slaves are also used for working labour

The act of slavery is not expressly forbidden by law within Her Majesty's realms. While the Queen most certainly feels for the plight endured by shackled personages within her borders, she is only capable of swaying her authority over subjects enjoying the full benefits of Zevasi citizenship. By law, to claim citizenship with the Queendom the individual must be free; slaves, by definition, are not free, and therefore cannot enjoy the benefits of Her Majesty's realm.

Although it is illegal to enslave any of the Zevasi citizenry, and although it is illegal to actively capture and enslave any within Zevassa's borders, the specific issue of slavery within Zevassa persists almost exclusively within the privatized sector. All known slaves within Her Majesty's realm are foreign... 'imports'... captured outside of her jurisdiction. It is not illegal to be a slave in Zevassa, nor is it illegal to own slaves in Zevassa; the law only regulates the actual act of the creation of new slaves within Zevasi borders, and protects both the natural and naturalized Zevasi citizenry from losing personal freedoms in such manner. Furthermore, it is not illegal to not be free in Zevassa.
